Jamie Oliver has impressed his fans with a moreish bake combining potatoes, cream, and parmesan cheese, and it’s perfect for any winter day.

Potatoes have become a staple in the British diet thanks to their unmatched versatility, and celebrity chefs have taken full advantage of this in their cooking ventures.

Since the festive period celebrates comfort food, cooks across the country are flaunting their top recipes for feasting inspiration. Jamie Oliver is among them, with his creamy and tangy potatoes al forno.

“This is one of my favourite side dishes, and frankly, it’s so good I sometimes just have it for lunch with a big gresh salad to provide a bit of contrast,” the chef quipped on his website.

“It’s easy to put together, and always delivers big on flavour, whatever you serve it with.”
